There's 1mb of ram for the basic code, it doesn't sound like much but that's enough for 170000+ lines of code (as the BASIC is tokenised behind the scene when you enter it IIRC).

There is 5MB of ram reserved for your graphics/sprites/sound etc. Again, retro graphics care very compact and there's more than enough for a full level of streets of rage + sprites too.

See here, for a rundown of the RAM after the guy in the video creates his own demo... youtu.be/lzrX72aB7zg?t=830

Again, this would be a monster 8bit/16bit micro back in the day, hell the interpreted basic runs 100x faster than pure 6502 assembly on the C64!  :blink:

It's a retro boot-into-Basic computer that you can build by yourself. Strictly a fun DIY project for the dark winter nights!  :D

Cool beans, I may try to convert some of the C demos if I get the time to GLB, I'll keep you informed how this works out. ;)

Great stuff and a lot of fun to mess around with, thank you Schranz0r!  :happy:

One thing, did you write a Raylib to GLB parser type of util or did you do the conversion by hand (via find/replace etc.) for all the various calls/enums?

11
Nicely done sir! Too late to look at it tonight, will enjoy a proper look tomorrow.  :good:

12
Ooh, Raylib + GLB could be the perfect match!

13
Wow, very cool, thanks Schranz0r!

I enjoy messing around with other APIs in GLB, this should be interesting.  :booze:

Changed to ESet Nod32 when I had the problem, a lot less false positive generic reports.
